During an Oval Office meeting in which lawmakers discussed restoring protections for immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador, and Africa, Trump lashed out at the prospect of enacting legislation for those who come from “shithole countries.”

“Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” Trump said during a meeting with Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Richard Durbin (D-IL), as well as those with more hardline immigration stances, including Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) and Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR), among others.

Adding insult to injury, Trump then went so far as to suggest that the United States should welcome people who come from countries like Norway. Trump met with the Norwegian Prime Minister yesterday. The difference, of course, is that Norwegians are overwhelmingly caucasian, whereas those from Haiti, El Salvador, and Africa are not.

While the intent of the meeting was to find common ground for a bipartisan immigration deal, Trump’s glaringly racist and petulant comments reportedly left lawmakers stunned.

Trump’s remark comes on the heels of his administration’s decision to end protections for more than 200,000 Salvadorans living in the United States. The move jeopardizes an entire subset of people who have been living in the country for 15 years.

Trump’s take was many things – disgusting, racist, and ill advised – but surprising it was not.
